Ulrick & Short, the clean-label ingredients supplier, has added to its team of technical specialists with the appointment of Jon Arzberger in a business development role.

Arzberger, a qualified food scientist, has particular specialisms in bakery, sauces and savouries.

Previously responsible for research and new product development at a leading food manufacturing group, Ulrick & Short said his prior experience with health foods and ingredients would help to promote its extensive range of clean-label non-GM starches, proteins, fibres and flours.

Ulrick & Short director Adrian Short said: “I would be amazed if anyone could open their kitchen cupboards and not find at least one of the brands with which Jon has previously worked. We are very pleased to have Jon on board, as his experience and technical skillset will perfectly enhance our existing team of hard-working and talented professionals.”

Arzberger said: “Ulrick & Short is very well known as a leading British starch specialist and I’ve been aware of the company and its ingredients for some time now. It has such an excellent reputation in the industry that I could not wait to be part of the team.”
